Fundraising for Bushfire Victims

Brisbane Catholic Education is inviting schools to participate in a united fundraiser “Hearts Aflame” to assist St Vincent De Paul in their works to support victims of the Australian bushfire tragedy.

Similar to “Show the Love to Townsville”, this brief campaign encourages schools to unite in the cause to support the many people around the country whose lives have been shattered by the extreme fire event. Many of these people are already suffering from the challenges of the drought.

It is hoped that between now and the fast nearing end of the year that schools might undertake a small fundraiser across the school community “Hearts Aflame for Bushfire Survivors”. The goal is to raise, in this short time, $35, 000 for donation to St Vincent De Paul’s bushfire appeal. I have asked Therese to speak to our Mini Vinnies students for some ideas for a fund-raising event before the end of this term. Thank you in advance for your support of this.
